Whether you are new to the world of banking or have previous experience in the financial sector, Chase careers offer a varied and rewarding selection of job openings. One of the the United States ‘Big Four’ banks (along with Bank of America, Citibank and Wells Fargo) Chase bank is the consumer and commercial arm of the JPMorgan Chase financial services company. The parent company has an annual revenue of over $100 billion and employs almost a quarter of a million people in a variety of different job positions in the banking sector. Of these employees over half work for the Chase bank subsidiary which itself enjoys an annual operating revenue of over $50 billion and remains one of the countries most popular banks for consumers and businesses alike.
Whilst Chase bank offers the typical banking jobs you might expect from this sector such as a branch teller, personal banker or mortgage loan officer, JPMorgan Chase is involved in almost every area of the financial world such as in corporate and investment banking and as such and offers a host of other career opportunities to consider. Since the majority of people looking for bank jobs are searching for positions on the retail banking side of things, we are going to look specifically at the jobs and careers of Chase bank and what they can offer you. However it is worth remembering that if you these options don’t appeal to you then JPMorgan Chase may well offer something that suits you perfectly instead.
Working at Chase means working in retail banking, commercial banking and also in card services. There are over two thousand Chase branches found across seventeen states meaning there are plenty of job openings and career opportunities to be had with the company right across the country. The starting point for most people who are just commencing their career in the finance sector is working as at teller at a retail branch. Despite being the lowest rung of the ladder at the company, compared to other entry level jobs you’ll find a position as a bank teller at Chase to be well paid, rewarding and able to provide you with the training and opportunities to prove yourself and progress you career.
Being a customer facing role in a bank the obvious skills which you’ll need to demonstrate are customer focused communication skills and, naturally, a solid grasp of math. If you possess these abilities then you stand in good stead when applying for a job with Chase. Due to the location of many Chase branches, being bilingual is also considered an advantage which could help you during the application process. Beyond these skills a basic knowledge of retail banking, such as the products and services that are offered to customers is helpful although full training is given with Chases bank teller training program.
Another entry level job position available is as a telephone banker in a Chase call center. Again you will be dealing with customers directly so great customer service skills are a must and similarly being bilingual is an advantage. If you are interested in this kind of job position then previous experience is required – typically at least six months in a similar role that involved customer service or sales. You’ll be receiving incoming calls from the banks clients and helping them with their queries as well as identifying the correct financial products and services to help meet their needs.
Either of the above two job positions are great ways to take your first steps into banking or indeed if you are working or have previously worked in a similar role then you’ll find the Chase working environment to be challenging yet fulfilling. These two employment opportunities also provide a gateway to promotion and higher positions within the bank. A job as a Chase teller can lead to promotion in roles like Personal Banker where you will help existing customers with the financial situation and needs, or even as a Branch manager overseeing the operation and sales of a retail branch. Call centers also provide room for growth with a number of positions to move up into like as an Auto Finance Collector or Credit Card Services advisor.
